Growing OldTo Jonathan Penton's previous piece     You Look Like a Toy to MeTo Jonathan Penton's next piece

I want to kiss the lips of a girl
that will make me well
I want to touch a medicinal tongue
That can fill me
But your tongue
standing next to this task

I want to kiss the first
girl that I let down
want to kiss all the boys that I could never help
I want to kiss the leper; I want to kiss the madam
I want to kiss your disease as it wanders its way
through your

I want to kiss my brother
back before he learned how to kiss
I want to kiss my mother when my father
learned how to hit
I want to kiss my father as he cursed his father's name
I want to kiss the dead before they pass...
As they pass.
As they pass.

But your tounge
sings weakly
And your tits
just taste like my drool now.
